One of the most brutal kidnappers and rapists of the XXI century, Ariel Castro, committed suicide in a prison cell back in 2013, but his victims still tell the world about his atrocities.
Three girls whom Castro abducted on the street and forcibly held in his house for 9 years, raping and mocking, continue to share the eerie details of life in captivity. The pain and suffering experienced torment them even now, not giving rest to their crippled souls and bodies.
Three victims told how their abductor Ariel Castro treated them terribly. Amanda Berry (Amanda Berry), Gina DeJesus (Gina DeJesus) and Michelle Knight (Michael Knight) shared a candid story of their stay in captivity by a criminal.
Three women were abducted between 2002 and 2004. For a long time they endured violence, starvation and torture. Their tormentor was arrested in 2013 after Amanda managed to escape and call rescuers on the phone of neighbors.
The pervert kept his victims in a house in Cleveland, Ohio. The school bus driver sowed jealousy and enmity between women, choosing favorites to whom he gave more food and better clothes.
Amanda Berry was only 17 years old when Castro stole her right on the street on her way home from work on April 21, 2003. She recalls that the kidnapper did not allow the girls to communicate with each other.
Gina DeJesus became the youngest of the pervert's victims. In 2004, she turned 14 years old. Castro considered her his favorite and "spoiled" her with food from the cafe and new clothes.
Michelle Knight changed her name to Lily Rose Lee after a terrible story. The criminal abducted her first on August 23, 2002, when she was returning home from her cousin. At that time, the girl was 21 years old.The captives were allowed to unite only occasionally in order to sing in chorus. Strict rules reigned inside the prison house, even to the point that the kidnapper regulated the amount of soap with which his captives were washed.
The school bus driver Ariel Castro kidnapped the victims, offering them a ride. After that, he lured the girls to his house and chained them in the basement.
The pervert deceived Amanda Berry, saying that he would take her for a walk to his daughter, calling the name of one of the girl's classmates. After that, the man brought her to his home and raped her, locking her in one of the bedrooms.
All the abducted victims were chained with heavy chains in dark dirty rooms. They were allowed to take a shower only once a week, and Castro added poison to the food.
The maniac regularly raped girls during 9 long years of captivity. Michelle had five miscarriages, which Castro provoked by jumping on her stomach and beating her with dumbbells. After experiencing a nightmare, a woman will never have children again.
Amanda Berry became pregnant by a rapist at the age of 20. On December 25, 2006, she gave birth to a daughter, Jocelyn. Despite the fact that the baby was very similar to her tormentor, the woman was able to accept and love her.
Three victims managed to escape from their abductor on May 6, 2013. He left them alone at home for the first time in 10 years. Amanda saw that Castro had forgotten to lock her room. She immediately grabbed her 6-year-old daughter and ran to the neighbors to call the police. The police immediately rushed over and freed the captives who had been enslaved by the pervert for many years.The pain that Ariel Castro's victims endured will torment them all their lives. Fortunately, they managed to keep their sanity and not go crazy in captivity. The pervert committed suicide, easing his fate in prison. We hope that the time and support of relatives will help women to push the terrible memories to the farthest corners of memory, so that mental and physical injuries heal as soon as possible.
Negligence and oversight can lead to terrible consequences. A British criminal convicted of burglary has been released under an amnesty. In two weeks on the outside, the monster abused dozens of victims in several cities.
